HISTORICAL

THE STATE
of the first

North Carolina, often called the "Tar Heel" state, was the scene attempt to colonize America by English-speaking peoUnder a charter granted to Sir Walter Raleigh by Queen ple. Elizabeth, a colony was begun in the 1580's on Roanoke Island. This settlement, however, was unsuccessful and later became known as "The Lost Colony."

The first permanent settlement was made about 1650 by immigrants from Virginia. In 16 63 Charles II granted to eight Lords Proprietors a charter for the territory lying "within six and thirty degrees of the northern latitude, and to the west as far as the south seas, and so southerly as far as the River St. Mattias. which bordereth upon the coast of Florida, and within one and thirty degrees of northern latitude, and so west in a direct line as tar as the south seas aforesaid; ..." and the colony was called Carolina. In 1665 another charter was granted to these noblemen.
This charter extended the limits of Carolina so that the northern line was 36 degrees and 30 minutes north latitude, and the southern line was 2 9 degrees north latitude, and both of these lines extended westward to the South Seas.
In 1669 John Locke wrote the Fundamental Constitutions as a The Lords Proprietors model for the government of Carolina. adopted these constitutions and directed the governor to put into operation as much of them as was feasible. In 16 70 there were four precincts (changed to counties in 1739): Pasquotank. PerNorth Carolina now has one quimans, Chowan, and Currituck. hundred counties. Carolina on December 7. 1710, was divided into North Carolina and South Carolina, and Edward Hyde, on May 9. 1712. became the first governor of North Carolina.
In 17 29 seven of the eight Lords Proprietors sold their interest Carolina to the Crown and North Carolina became a royal

North Carolina has had a democratic administration since 1900, during which period it has made its greatest progress. North Carolina has had two permanent capitals New Bern and and there have been three capitol buildings. Raleigh Tryon's Palace in New Bern was constructed in the period, 1767-1770, and

In 1738, the General Assembly of North Carolina passed an act authorizing the establishment of district courts which served as ppelant courts. These courts were authorized to be held in Bath. New Bern, and New- Town now Wilmington. In 1746, the General Assembly repealed the act of 1738 and established district courts to l«e held at Edenton. Wilmington, and Edgecombe. From 17f>4

were formed as the state expanded in and developed needs for these districts. By 1790, there were eight judicial districts divided into two ridings of four districts each. In 180 6, the General Assembly passed an act establishing a superior court in each county. The act also set up judicial districts composed of certain contiguous counties, and this practice of expanding the districts has continued from five districts in 1806 until now there are thirty districts.
North Carolina adopted the Federal Constitution on No was authorized to send two senators and five representatives to the Congress of the United States according to the constitutional apportionment. In 1792, when the first federal census had been completed and tabulated, it was found that North Carolina was entitled to ten representatives. It was then that the General Assembly divided the state into ten congressional districts. In 1812, the state had grown and increased in population until it was entitled to thirteen representatives in Congress. Between 1812 and 1865, however, the population decreased so much in proportion to the population of other states of the Union that North Carolina was by that time entitled only to seven representatives. After 18 65 the population of the state showed a steady increase so that beginning in 194 3 North Carolina was entitled to twelve representatives in Congress. The 1960 census showed that the state had nearly a half million more people than in 1950,

Agriculture

Following several successive years of mounting surpluses of tobacco in storage, production of flue-cured tobacco came under the acreage-poundage program for the first time in 1965. Compliance by North Carolina farmers with the terms of this program coupled with unfavorable climatic conditions resulted in 1965 reduction from the previous year of 259 million pounds of flue-cured leaf.

Conservation and Development

North Carolina moved forward by leaps and bounds during 1965 and 1966, setting the pace for the New South, and pressing forward with Governor Dan Moore's program for Total Development of our State's resources to the best advantage of its
citizens.

Once again, all existing records were shattered in capital investments announced for new and expanded manufacturing facilities. North Carolina's thriving travel industry set another income record in 19 65, and final 1966 figures are expected to be even higher. Our State Parks enjoyed new records in attendance and use by the public. Products manufactured from North Carolina's vast forest resources continued to yield more than $1 billion annually.

Expansion and development of the technical programs of the Mineral Resources and Geodetic Survey resulted in more knowledge of our State's resouces, and assistance to many facet? of the industrial community. Research and development of North Carolina's valuable maDivisions of

These new and expanded manufacturing facilities during 19 65 and 19 66 were the direct result of unprecedented cooperation and teamwork at the local, State and Federal levels. The Department of Conservation and Development continued to work closely with North Carolina's industrial development organizations, chambers of commerce, banks, railroads, utility companies, trucking industry and many other groups to strengthen and broaden the State's industrial base.

During 1966, a major effort in development of export markets North Carolina products was carried out by a far-reaching The mission was mission to Europe called Exportunity 1966. conducted with the cooperation and assistance of the United States Department of Commerce. Secretary of Commerce John T. Connor hailed results of the mission outstanding, calling it "... the most ambitious and far-reaching program of its type ever carried out by a State government."

Tourists from outside North Carolina spent $345 million in in 1965. This was the result of a ten percent increase tourist in expenditures. During the last decade, spending by visitors from other states lias been increasing at an average

rate of 7.3 percent annually. Trading with tourists has expanded well beyond the 5.7 percent yearly growth rate of all North Carolina retail business. Meanwhile, the national tourist market was rising 5.9 percent annually.

Fifteen million tourist parties visited or passed through North Carolina in 1965, bringing thirty million persons to our State. They traveled nearly six billion passenger miles on highways, Out-of-state tourists account for one-fifth railways and airways. of the nearly twenty-six billion miles of intercity travel by private

and public transportation. This large volume of spending by the transient tourist market stimulates North Carolina commerce and industry. Spending by travelers has created a $1.2 billion business in North Carolina which provides service and transportation for persons away from home.

Use by the public of North Carolina's 13 State Parks continued to increase by leaps and bounds during 1965 and 1966, setting new records each year. The emphasis on total use of the park facilities has generated more swimming, camping, hiking,
boating and fishing by park users.
In 1965, 2,092,519 persons visited the State Parks, a record high for total attendance. In 1966, a new record for total attendance of 2,182,300 was recorded, showing an increase of almost 90,000 over the previous year.

Planned improvements of current park facilities and an orderly program of expansion is being carried out by the State Parks Division, aimed at preserving, protecting and renewing the quality of those natural resources for which it is responsible.

many labor-saving devices for the rural home and farm activities. Electric service is practically essential in types of farm production; for example, the production of Grade A Milk.
The 1945 United States Census indicated that only 14,539 North Carolina farms had telephone service. The desire and need in the rural areas for communication, so essential to the well-being of
the people was so widespread that the 1945 General Assembly enacted the Rural Telephone Act, charging the North Carolina Rural Electrification Authority with the responsibility of assistrural residences in securing telephone service. Funds and personnel were first assigned to the program in 1949, which might well be termed the active beginning.

THE STATE CAPITOL
The original State Capital of North Carolina was destroyed by fire on June 21, 1831. At the session of November, 1832, the Assembly resolved to rebuild on the old site, and $50,000 was appropriated for the purpose. Commissioners were appointed to have the work done. The rubbish was cleared away, the excavations made and the foundawere laid. On July 4, 1833, the cornerstone was set in place. After the foundations were laid the work progressed more slowly and it was so expensive that the appropriation was exhausted. The Legislature at its next session appropriated $75,000 more. To do the stone and finer work many skilled artisans had been
tions

brought from Scotland and other countries. The Building Commissioners contracted with David Paton to come to Raleigh and superintend the work. Mr. Paton was an architect who had come from Scotland the year before. He was the builder, the architect,

and designer. The Legislature was compelled to make appropriations for the work from time to time. The following is a table of the several appropriations made:

and when the entire taxes for ;ill State purposes reached less than $100,000, yet the people were satisfied. The building had been erected with rigorous economy, and it was an object of great pride in the people. Indeed, never was money better expended Than in
the erection of this noble Capitol.

The Building Commission
The 1959 General Assembly appropriated funds and authorized the establishment of a Building Commission for the construction of a new building for the Legislative Branch of the State Government. The statute provided that two members be appointed by
each Presiding Officer of the two Houses and that three be appointed by the Governor. Archie K. Davis and Robert P. Morgan were appointed by Lieutenant Governor Luther E. Barnhardt; B. I. Satterfield and Thomas J. White were appointed by Speaker of the House Addison Hewlett; and Governor Hodges appointed A. E. Finley, Edwin Gill, and Oliver R. Rowe.

The Commission elected Thomas J. White as Chairman and Robert F. Morgan as Vice Chairman. Paul A. Johnston, Director of the Department of Administration, was elected Executive Secretary; and upon his resignation, the Commission elected Prank B.
Turner, State Property Officer, to succeed him. To perform architectural services, the Commission selected Edward Durell Stone of New York with John S. Holloway and Ralph B. Reeves, Jr., Associated. After prolonged study, the Commission selected a site one block North of the Capitol and encompassing a two-block area. The 5%streets.

acre site is bounded by Jones, Salisbury, Lane, and Wilmington Halifax Street between Jones and Lane streets was closed

and included within the new site. Bids were received in December, 1960; construction commenced in early 1961. The 1961 General Assembly appropriated an additional $1 million for furnishings and equipment bringing the total
appropriation to $5% million. Based upon the latest census, the cost of the building to citizens of North Carolina was $1.24 each.

These courts contain tropical plants, and three have pools, fountains, and hanging planters. The main floor areas of the courts are located in the first floor, and mezzanines overlook the courts from the second floor. The skylights which provide natural lighting are located within the roof gardens overhead. The courts provide access to committee rooms in the first floor, the legislative chambers in the second floor, and to members' offices in both
floors.

The Senate and House chambers, each 5,180 square feet in occupy the east and west wings of the second floor.

The pyramidal shape of the roofs is visible in the pointed ceilings inside. The structural ribs form a coffered ceiling; and inside the coffered patterns, concentric patterns are outlined in gold. In each chamber, the distance from the floor to the peak of the ceiling is 45 feet. Chandeliers in the chambers and main stair are 8 feet in diameter and weigh 625 pounds each. The 12-foot diameter chandelier of the rotunda, like the others, is of brass, but its weight is 750 pounds.

Because of the interior environment, the garden courts and rotunda have tropical plants and trees. Outside, however, the shrubs and trees are of an indigenous type. Among the trees in the grounds, on the podium, and in the roof areas are sugar maples, dogwoods, crabapples, magnolias, crepe myrtles, and
pines.

Throughout the building, the same color scheme is maintained: Walnut, white, gold, and red, with green foliage. In general, all wood is American walnut, metal is brass or other gold colored material, carpets are red, and upholstery is gold or black. The enclosed area consists of 206,000 square feet of floor area with a volume of 3,210,000 cubic feet. Heating equipment provides over 7,000,000 B.T.U. per hour; and the cooling equipment has a capacity of 620 tons. For lighting, motors, and other electrical equipment, the building has a connected service load of
over 2,000,000 watts.

THE STATE BIRD
By popular choice the Cardinal was selected for adoption as our State Bird as of March 4, 1943. (S. L. 1943 c. 595; G. S.
145-2).

This bird is sometimes called the Winter Redbird because it is most conspicuous in winter and is the only "redbird" present al It is an all year round resident and one of the comthat season. monest birds in our gardens and thickets. It is about the size of a Catbird with a longer tail, red all over, except that the throat and region around the bill is black; the head is conspicuously crested and the large stout bill is red; the female is much duller the red being mostly confined to the crest, wings and tail. There are no seasonal changes in the plumage. The Cardinal is a fine singer, and what is unusual among birds the female is said to sing as well as the male, which latter sex

usually has a monopoly of that art in the feathered throngs.

The nest is rather an untidy affair built of weed stems, grass and similar materials in a low shrub, small tree or bunch of briars, usually not over four feet above the ground. The usual number
of eggs to a set is three in this State, usually four further North. Possibly the Cardinal raises an extra brood down here to make up the difference, or possibly he can keep up his normal population more easily here through not having to face inclement winters of the colder North. A conspicuous bird faces more hazards.

The cardinal is by nature a seed eater, but he does not dislike small fruits and insects.

Halifax, April 12, 1776.

"The Select Committee taking into Consideration the usurpaand tions and violences attempted and committed by the King Parliamenl of Britain against America, and the further Measures better defence of to be taken for frustrating the same, and for the
this province reported as follows, to wit,
"It appeals to your Committee that pursuant to the Plan concerted by the British Ministry for subjugating America, the King and Parliamenl of Great Britain have usurped a Power over the

Persons and Properties of the People unlimited and uncontrouled; and disregarding their humble Petitions for Peace, Liberty and War Famsafety, have made divers Legislative Acts, denouncing ine and every Species of Calamity against the Continent in GenThat British Fleets and Armies have been and still are eral. the most daily employed in destroying the People and commiting
horrid devastations on the Country. That Governors in different Colonies have declared Protection to Slaves who should imbrue their Hands in the Blood of their Masters. That the Ships belonging to America are declared prizes of War and many of them have been violently seized and confiscated in consequence of which multitudes of the people have been destroyed or from easy Cir-

cumstances reduced to the most Lamentable distress. •And whereas the moderation hitherto manifested by the United Colonies and their sincere desire to be reconciled to the mother Country on Constitutional Principles, have procured no mitigation of the aforesaid Wrongs and usurpations, and no hopes remain of obtaining redress by those Means alone which have been hitherto tried. Your Committee are of Opinion that the house should enter
into the following Resolve, to wit

"Resolved that the delegates for this Colony in the Continental Congress he impowered to concur with the delegates of the other Colonies in declaring Independency, and forming foreign Alliances, reserving to this Colony the Sole, and Exclusive right of

NAME OF STATE AND NICKNAMES
In 1629 King Charles the First of England "erected into a province," all the land from Albemarle Sound on the north to the St. John's River on the south, which he directed should be called Carolina. The word Carolina is from the word Carolus, the Latin

form

of Charles.

Carolina was divided in 1710, the southern part was Souuth Carolina and the northern or older settlement was called North Carolina, or the "Old North State." Historians had recorded the fact that the principal products of this State were It was during one of the fiercest "tar, pitch and turpentine." battles of the War Between the States, so the story goes, that the column supporting the North Carolina troops was driven from the field. After the battle the North Carolinians, who had successfully fought it out alone, were greeted from the passing derelict regiment with the question: "Any more tar down in the Old North State, boys?" Quick as a flash came the answer: "No; not a bit; old Jeff's bought it all up." "Is that so; what is he going to do with it?" was asked. "He is going to put it on you-uns heels to

The State Motto
of 1893 (chapter 145) adopted the words Videri" as the State's motto and directed that these words with the date "20 May, 1775," should be placed with our Coat of Arms upon the Great Seal of the State. The words "Esse Quam Videri" mean "to be rather than to seem." Nearly every State has adopted a motto, generally in Latin. The reason for their mottoes being in Latin is that the Latin

THE AMERICAN'S CREED
I believe in the United States of America, as a government of the people., by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect

union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it, to support its constitution,
to

obey

its

laws, to respect its flag, and to defend

it

against

all

enemies,

(The American's Creed by William Tyler Page was adopted by an act of Congress, April 6. 1918.)

THE AMERICAN FLAG,

IT'S

ORIGIN

In 1775, the Philadelphia Troop of Light Horse carried a standard with thirteen alternate blue and silver stripes in the upper left-hand corner. At Cambridge on January 2, 1776, Washington

without authorization of the Continental Congress raised a flag consisting of thirteen alternate white and red stripes with the crosses of St. George and St. Andrew in a blue field in the upper left-hand corner. It was called the "Union Flag," "Grand Union
Flag," and the "Continental Flag," and was employed until displaced by the Stars and Stripes adopted by the Continental Congress.

The beautiful tradition that Betsy Ross, as early as June 1776, a Stars and Stripes flag from a pencil sketch supplied by Washington but changed the points of the stars from six to five, has become a classic. Historians doubt its accuracy. Half a dozen

made

claim to have been the place where the Stars and Stripes used. Within New York State such contention has been for Fort Ann on July 8, Fort Stanwix on August 3, Bennington on August 13, and Saratoga on September 19, 1777. The flag with thirteen stripes and thirteen stars, authorized on June 14, 1777, continued to be used as the national emblem until Congress passed the following act, which President Washington signed: "That from and after May 1, 1795, the flag of the United States be fifteen stripes, alternate red and white; and that the union be fifteen stars, white in a blue field."
localities

North Carolina Manual

This action was necessitated by the admission of the States of Vermont and Kentucky to the Union. The flag of 1795 had the stars arranged in three rows of live each instead of in a circle, and served for 2 3 years. With the admission of more new states, however, it became apparent that the 1795 Hag would have to be further modified; hence in 1818 a law was passed by Congress providing: •'That from and after the fourth day of July next, the Hag
of the United States be thirteen horizontal stripes, alternate red and white; that the union have twenty stars, white in a blue field.

Canby read a paper before the Pennsylvania Historical Society in which he states that in 183 6, when his grandmother, Betsy Ross, was 8 4 years old and he was 11, she told him the story.

THE DECLARATION OF INDEPENDENCE
(Unanimously Adopted
in Congress, July
4,

1776, at Philadelphia)

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth,
and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and God ontitles them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident: That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights; that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That, to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; That, whenever any Form of Government hethe separate

roines destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its

foundations on such principles, and organizing
forms, as to

and

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and, accordingly, all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies, and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great
Happiness.
Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.

CENSUS

POPULATION OF THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA
Eighteenth Census of the United States: 1960

The population of North Carolina's urban places continued to grow faster than that of the rural areas between 1950 and 1960, according to the eighteenth decennial census, issued by Robert W. Burgess, Director of the Bureau of the Census, Department of Commerce. Final figures show that the urban population increased from
1,368,101 in 1950 to 1,801,921 in 1960, or 31.6 per cent, while the rural population increased from 2,693,828 in 1950 to 2,754,234 in 1960 or an increase of only 2.2 per cent. The final count of the Eighteenth Census for the State on April 1, 1960, was 4,556,155 compared to 4,061,929 in 1950, or an increase of 12.2 per cent.
tion in 1960 as
in

Urban residents accounted for 39.5 per cent compared with 33.7 per cent

of the State's populain 1950. Rural areas

1960 accounted for 60.5 per cent of the total population. The Census Bureau considers as urban areas the incorporated places of 2,500 or more, or unincorporated places of 2,500 or more located outside urbanized areas. The remaining territory is classified as
rural.

There were 35 incorporated places of 10,000 or more in 1960. Five of these (Chapel Hill, Jacksonville, Lenoir, Lumberton and Roanoke Rapids) reached that size since 1950. Charlotte remains the State's largest city with a population of 201,564, followed in order by Greensboro with 119,574 and Winston-Salem with 111,135. According to final figures of the 1960 census 63 of the counties gained in population. Onslow County showed the greatest gain with an increase of 96.7 per cent. Cumberland County placed second with an increase of 54.6 per cent, while Mecklenburg was third with a 3 8.1 per cent gain. The first census of North Carolina was taken in 1790, returning a population of 393,751. The population has shown an increase at every census since that time. The population passed 1,000,000 between 1860 and 1870, 2,000,000 between 1900 and 1910, 3,000,000 between 1920 and 1930, 4,000,000 between 1940 and 1950, and 4,500,000 between 1950 and 1960. The present population represents a density of 8 6.4 inhabitants per square mile. North Land area is Carolina's total area in square miles is 52,712.
49,142 square miles; water area is 3.57(1 square miles. Table 1 presents the figures for counties and for incorporated places of 10,000 or more, and Table 2 for incorporated places of 133 less than 10.000.

The Judiciary:
is

Improvement

in the

administration of justice

the constant aim of the judiciary in North Carolina. That effort, supported by the Democratic Party, resulted in the enactment of The Judicial Department Act by the 1965 General Assembly. Implementation of this Act will greatly improve the court system
of the state.

The North Carolina Courts Commission, an arm of the General Assembly, continues to work on legislation for enactment in 1967 that will further modernize the court system of North Carolina to insure equal justice under the law for all men.
In

the firm belief that impartial justice

is

a

cornerstone of

democracy, the Democratic Party will continue to encourage and support all reasonable efforts in the area of judicial reform.

AGRICULTURE:
The Democratic Party has traditionally led and, in large measure, been responsible for action resulting in the greatest farming productivity in the history of mankind. In spite of this, technical advances and products of research have forced increasObviously, to strive ing numbers of families to leave the farm. for a better balanced economy while maintaining pace with the
requirements of a growing population, it will be necessary to develop new and better methods of stabilizing our rural population while increasing the income of our farm families.

The Democratic Party pledges its firm support to all governmental agencies with responsibilities that relate to these goals. North Carolina farm products must be processed and distributed so that the farmers of this state receive a fair share of agricultural income. Marketing service programs that are directed toward assisting farmers and trades people with specific problems should be expanded. Research and consumer protection programs should be expanded to insure renewed confidence on the part of the Extension programs public in the farm products we produce. and agency projects designed to improve farm income and all facets of rural life should be continued.

CORRECTIONAL. PROGRAMS:
Democratic leadership has given North Carolina a prison and correctional system that is generally recognized as one of the best in the nation. Emphasis within the prison system is placed on productive work, with increasing attention given to programs of
education, vocational training and counseling designed to return prison inmates to society as responsible, contributing citizens. This enlightened approach is equally evident in our juvenile correction programs and in the Probation Commission and Board of Paroles. We support the continuation of these policies.

In view of the fact that water is the best basic of all these natural resources, we propose that special attention be given at this time to methods of insuring the conservation and wise use of the state's water resources.

PUBLIC HEALTH:
As a state that has pioneered in the public health field, we advocate continued improvement of public health services through close cooperation of local, state and federal agencies to insure adequate protection for all North Carolinians. Recognizing the growth of our population, the outstanding public health program now established in North Carolina must be carried forward to decrease the infant mortality rate and reduce maternal deaths. We must deal effectively with chronic We must continue disease and environmental health factors. educational activities in all areas where such activities have

TAXATION:
North Carolina remains at one of the nation's lowest levels of combined state and local taxation per capita and at the same time offers public service programs which continually rate national attention. We advocate continued emphasis on the businesslike, economical administration of government; a tax structure that equitably distributes the cost of services required from government; increased personal exemptions, if economic conditions warrant, to correspond with federal income tax exemptions, and just and firm administration of the tax laws of the state. The Democratic Party opposes and will work diligently to prevent an increase in state taxes.

NORTH CAROLINA REPUBLICAN STATE
PLATFORM
1966

NATIONAL AFFAIRS
The present national Administration, and indeed the DemoParty itself, is marked, among other things, hy two extremely dangerous trends: One, an ever-increasing unwarranted centralization of power in the Federal Government; and two, an
cratic

utter disregard for financial responsibility in our national fiscal
affairs.

We ask only for the free opportunity to do things for ourselves and our country. This is a nation which has prospered in a climate of freedom which has permitted each individual to develop his maximum potential. We must move away from the deadening influence of paternalism and return to policies which stimulate and encourage individual incentive. Then, and only then, can our nation march forward to its greater destiny strong enough to discourage outside influences and sensitive to the welfare of all its citizens at home.

FISCAL INTEGRITY:
The national spiraling inflation created by the administration's domestic and international give-away program must be curbed The record of the by more responsible Republican leadership. present administration shows a continuing disregard for the importance of fiscal integrity in national affairs. We commend the efforts of Congressmen Charles R. Jonas and James T. Broyhill to stem the tide of irresponasible governmental spending, and we pledge our best to return them to Congress with others of like mind. This state needs more Republican Congressmen to help organize the Congress and direct its policies into channels more in line with the thinking of the people of North Carolina.

FOREIGN AFFAIRS:

We regret the irresolution and lack of leadership displayed by the current administration in stemming Communist imperialism throughout the world, and in particular in Southeast Asia. Because of the indecisiveness of the present administration our international prestige is at its lowest ebb. and Communist aggression moves forward. We call upon our national leadership to let the interest and national safety of this country and the West be the polar star for the guidance of our foreign and policy pursue that policy with firmness and with strength.

STATE AFFAIRS
North Carolina possesses potential unexcelled by any of the other 49 states. That potential is the ability of our citizens. This state has been unable to utilize its potential because of the oneparty system of government exhibited by the Democratic Party When any political party is too long in power, it becomes primarily interested in its own perpetuation without primary regard to the best interest of the people. Our present low position among the states in education, health, welfare, income, etc. is proof of the results of the one-party system.

A comparison of the educational history of Republican States with that of Democrat States during the last 65 years points to the undeniable fact that Republican States lead the nation in the field of education, while Democrat States rank near the bottom in every evaluation of school standards.

Standing ai 43rd among the 50 states, business economists have predicted it will take a half a century for North Carolina to catch up with the rest of the nation in per capita income at the
present rate of growth. We submit this to be the most acute economic problem of our state. Attracting industries which utilize comparatively unskilled and untrained labor contributes very little to our overall problem of low per capita income. We want to see more emphasis on developing industries which would afford higher incomes to

our state's wage earners

To this end, we recommend an immediate and sharply expanded boost to the Research Triangle. In addition, we recommend any other regionally placed sub-centers which might be needed for p icialized research, industrialization and development. Diversification of industry and more technical jobs created by these centers represent the two most logical approaches in attacking our states chronic problem of unemployment and under-employment.

Thus, while there is still time to do so, the Republican Party of North Carolina advocates that increased emphasis be placed on fully developing water resources of the State to meet foreseeable State demands for decades to come.

We must immediately get down to the task of systematic planning for the best use of the State's water resources in an orderly and rational way.

COMMERCIAL FISHERIES
As
tion

— SALT WATER RESOURCES

this division of the North Carolina Department of Conservaand Development has functioned in the past, little constructive emphasis has been placed upon either of the fundamental functions of Conservation or development of North Carolina fishery resources. This lack of emphasis and resulting failure in its primary purposes is partly attributable to unnecessary emphasis on the activities of tax collection and law enforcement. Under the control of the Democrat Party, the operation of the Commercial and Sports Fisheries Division of the North Carolina Department of Conservation and Development, as presently conducted, has become a matter of collecting taxes (from the fishing industry) with which to pay for law enforcement officers. Many of the laws enforced are merely laws levying taxes (or licenses). Thus, this agency is, in effect a "political perpetual motion ma-

living.

Boats are the machinery used by fishermen for making their For the reason that the farmer's plow is not taxed, the fisherman's boat should not be taxed by special licenses. We further deem it necessary that the law enforcement func-

tions of the Commercial and Sports Fisheries Division of the North Carolina Department of Conservation and Development be assumed by a duly constituted law enforcement agency of the State, the North Carolina Waterway Patrol. The North Carolina Republican Party believes that, in this way, more effective and constructive practices can be established and that valuable contributions to the economics of the coastal areas of North Carolina can be made. We, furthermore, believe that these accomplishments will "inure" to the general benefit of all North Carolinians. Once relieved of these two functions mentioned above, the Commercial and Sports Fisheries Division of the North Carolina Department of Conservation and Development should direct its efforts toward the proper objectives of conservation of basic brood stocks of the State's fishery resources and the development of the fishing and related industries. We believe that the Division of Commercial and Sports Fisheries should be a separate department of government which will place added emphasis upon research, seafood processing and marketing in an attempt to raise the economy of coastal North Carolina and that this new division should also place added emphasis on the development of the sports fishing industry in North Carolina.

STATE PORTS
The North Carolina Republican Party believes that the North Carolina port facilities at Morehead City and Wilmington are vitally important to the State and its industries by affording the opportunity for world-wide commerce; and we advocate that major emphasis be placed upon our ports for their expansion in

art';i.'~ regarding promotion, advertising, and capital improvements; and we believe that a modern East-West highway is essential for the growth and usage of our ports. We believe that these port facilities can and should continue to operate on a self-supporting basis in the tradition of a free and

competitive economy.

COASTAL WATER WAYS
is aware of the tremendous increase of pleasure boating in our coastal water, and is also aware that the lack of concern regarding the boating public is a detriment to tourist trade in our coastal areas. Therefore, we advocate the following policies:
1.

The North Carolina Republican Party

That there be an acceleration in the construction of boat ramps and relief stations in our coastal areas to be under the direction of the North Carolina Wildlife Reserve Commission.

2.

•"..

That the State inaugurate a politically free Waterway Patrol to promote safe boating practices, and to provide assistance and protection for the boating public; and that there be established safety requirements and regulations for the operation of high powered boats. That the North Carolina Highway Department in the mutual interest of highway traffic and water traffic adopt a policy of increasing the clearances under all fixed and draw-span bridges over coastal waterways.

INLAND LAKES AND RIVERS
The Republican Party recognizes the rights of all persons to We also recognize the dangers enjoy inland lakes and rivers. and problems involved w hen the same streams and lakes are used by different persons for different forms of recreation. We propose statewide regulation for the protection and control of boaters, swimmers, skiers, fishermen and divers while using our inland

The future of our State is bright, for the people are realizing the advantages and necessity of a healthy two-party system of The shackles and heavy yoke of oppressive and government. lethargic one-party system are rapidly being discarded in North Carolina. Control of the government is being returned to the
people, where it rightly should and will be with the emergency of a healthy, competitive, and active two-party system of govern-
